FREE READ Å Imperium When Tiro the confidential secretary of a Roman senator opens the door to a terrified stranger on a cold November morning he sets in motion a chain of events which will eventually propel his master into one of the most famous courtroom dramas. 30 stars This book did exactly what I expected it to do It was a both a solid enjoyable read and at the same time an unremarkable story that will be forgotten as uickly as my self respect inhibitions on Teuila To put it in the shell s nut this was good entertainment but likely won t earn a hallowed place among your list of favorites I did appreciate that this book lent itself extremely well to audio because the story is VERY easy to follow and the narrative is not jammed with dense exposition that would reuire careful reading Thus I was able to listen and stay engaged in the story while organizing my library on goodreads and keeping tabs on the basketball and hockey games on TV with the volume on mute Plus as a bonus with my headphones in my hands were free to hold my beerit was your classic win win though somebody should flog me for using that expression This is the first book in a trilogy set in ancient Rome during the time of the First Triumvirate ie Julius Caesar Pompey and Crassus By the way I could have just said ancient Rome but Triumvirate is such a tasty word that I thought it needed some air time Anyway the story is a fictional biography centering on the legendary orator Cicero as told by his private secretary Tiro Tiro we are told invented the concept of shorthand which provides a credible basis for him to be able to transcribe everything that he sees and hears as he follows Cicero around I found this to be a pretty effective plot device for showing the supposed accuracy of the narrative In this first book we meet a young Cicero at the beginning of his career Cicero is a junior Senator in the Roman Senate who has already garnered somewhat of a reputation as a brilliant speaker As a result he is sought out by a Sicilian merchant who has been robbed libeled and threatened with death by the corrupt Roman governor of Sicily named Verres After much begging cajoling and persuading the merchant eventually secures Cicero s agreement to represent him in prosecuting the powerful governor From that fateful decision we follow Cicero as he makes allies and enemies and skillfully maneuvers his way through the uagmire giggity giggity of Roman politics and with each success gains stature and prominence within the Roman hierarchy I thought the descriptions of Rome and the background of Roman life while expectedly sparse were still interesting and kept my attention The book is certainly not a mechanism for one to obtain a detailed historical account of life in ancient Rome but since I didn t expect it to be I was not disappointed There was enough detail to place the narrative and provide general background for the story which is all the story called for Overall a good solid read If you are a fan of historical fiction this is book that I think you will enjoy If you are a scholar of ancient Rome and looking for insight and exposition on the details of ancient Rome this is not where you will find them For me I found it a light pleasant story and was never bored I also found the characters and the narrative compelling enough that I will likely continue on with the series to see what happens next Hope this helps Red Poppies A Novel of Tibet door to a terrified stranger on a cold November morning he sets in motion a chain of events which will eventually propel his master into
